The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Pinellas County09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Pinellas County do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc are here to help with any service needs you may have. I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to try to a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few dollars. Here are a few of the things that our pros have spent years learning and sharpening, demonstrating why having an expert take care of your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up over time on both your interior and exterior coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will search for these connections and stay clear from blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels. Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked regularly. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more often than it needs to, reducing the productivity and potentially stunting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
